Cat house plans for the do-it-yourself crowd are available from a few sources. If you want to have your cat house built, or build it yourself, you can start with these ideas and instructions.
Surprisingly, I've been having a hard time finding plans, or even resources that list links, at least decent ones.
Unfortunately, the searches I've done have produced some pretty lousy results, and I'd really like to see a lot more plans out there.
In any case, I figured if I couldn't find many, then others might be having the same problem, so I thought I'd collect some resources for you and list them here.
